Even if we say we do not love the world, we can be tempted to violate our consciences. Lot compromised because his faith was too weak to stand against Sodom’s relentless debauchery. He lost his testimony, his family, and his character. In this message, we apply lessons from Lot’s failure. Is God faithful even when we fall hard?

Christians are called to have an impact on the world. When Abraham’s neighboring cities faced fire and brimstone, he interceded for them.

When God is silent, we often doubt His promises. After the birth of Ishmael, Abraham did not hear from God for years.

We might be the victim of our own decisions or others. Abraham and Sarah tried to engineer their circumstances so their maid, Hagar, would bear a son—an heir. In this message, we look at God’s command and promise to Hagar, who was the victim of the decision. People do not have the last word. In our despair and our extremities, God sees and intervenes.

How do we know God is working in us to bring about His purpose? In Genesis 15, God makes a covenant with Abraham—entirely based on His own word. But Abraham is obsessed with the problem of the promise. In this message, we are invited to a covenant without conditions. God says He will do what He promises—our eternities depend on it.

Can we trust God to take care of us? Abraham was chosen by God to leave the comforts of Ur, going to a land he had never seen. Along the way, Abraham bent the truth to save his own skin, telling Egypt’s Pharaoh that his wife was his sister. In this message, we identify four lessons at the junction of trusting or backsliding.

What do we need to hear if our passion for God is lost? The Apostle Paul founded a church in the ancient seaport of Ephesus. The church was doctrinally robust; they had even cast out false teachers.

Our lives and circumstances may not change, but do we desire to carry out the Father’s will, regardless of the outcome?

We often are tempted to believe the lie that God must not love us, especially when we have unfulfilled desires. Some people think that God always leads His children in easy pathways of blessing when in reality, God often leads His people into the wilderness.

It seems the world is reeling from crisis to crisis in a climate of fear. Fear consumes many of us, and for the rest, it lurks in the back of our minds.

In this message on Psalm 27, we’ll explore four blessings David held onto even though he faced difficult circumstances.

Like Christians in ancient Rome, believers around the world today experience persecution meant to destroy their faith.
